  3. Agreement on terms
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    I have come to accept that western journalists cannot accurately, let alone objectively, represent the Middle East and the Arab world. The problem is not that journalists do not always adhere to their own professional codes and methods, though that does happen. It is that even if correspondents strictly obey all the rules, they still present a fundamentally biased and skewed picture of the Middle East.
  4. Airbrushing Barbarity
    The Warped Language of Public Policy

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    Couching moral/political matters in technocratic language helps us forget the unpleasantness of the underlying incivility and brutality of political measures. Political discourse is fundamentally dishonest in that it airbrushes barbarity.

  6. America’s Capitalist Religion has Little Room for Science
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2015
    The US mainstream press accuse the Pope of being leftist. Evidence? Well, they make the claim that he is leftist because he supports the theory of global warming. My guess is that the Pope also supports the theory of gravity, which, like global warming, has a great body of scientific evidence to support it. But is science now a part of the leftist realm of influence?
  7. America's last taboo
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2002
    The unspoken premise of the mainstream press is that no Palestinian or Arab position on Israeli police terror, settler-colonialism, or military occupation is worth hearing from.

    First Published: 2016
    Apart from the substantive issues for the European elites of the Brexit referendum victory, two ancillary lessons have been thrust upon us, if we were not already wise to them. One, the contemptible character of the mainstream media. Two, the crucial importance of historical understanding.

  11. Assange and Posada in the Propaganda System
    Mixed Media

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2011
    Posada's case is a dramatic illustration of the fraudulence of the so-called "War on Terror" and highlights the U.S. refusal to abide by the rule of law. Assange's case shows well the U.S. establishment's fear of the free-flow of information that might interfere with foreign policy and reveal that there are many more Posadas whose service to the empire might be disclosed. And the media's cooperation in this protection of Posada and pursuit of Assange is clear. \

    First Published: 2010
    An essential role of corporate journalism is to shore up public confidence in an unjust, crisis-riven financial and economic system. Although plenty of gloom and doom is permitted, especially in the face of obvious crisis, the legitimacy of the system is rarely questioned.
  21. Business journalists go on the attack; demonize Atlantic seasonal workers
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013
    National business journalists and columnists have bought into Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s demeaning view that folks in the Atlantic region are backward and have a defeatist attitude.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    We need to address how corporate-owned mainstream news organizations restrict the freedom of journalists and prevent the public from having access to a wide variety of important news and opinion articles. This lack of balanced information affects everything from people having the information they need to decide how to vote to all of us better understanding how power is exercised in our communities. The censorship consists of banning some topics and discussions and filtering out stories and ideas that do not fit the current mainstream media agenda.

    First Published: 2013
    If all this glorification of a military commander had happened in the North Korean or the Soviet-era press, lavishly praising an 'original' who'd given years of 'patriotic service' in wars abroad, it would have rightly elicited scorn and ridicule amongst commentators here.

  61. "Exterminate all the Brutes": Gaza 2009
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    Israel has a straightforward means to defend itself: put an end to its criminal actions in occupied territories, and accept the long-standing international consensus on a two-state settlement that has been blocked by the US and Israel for over 30 years, since the US first vetoed a Security Council resolution calling for a political settlement in these terms in 1976. The Arab League has gone even beyond the consensus, calling for full normalization of relations with Israel. Hamas has repeatedly called for a two-state settlement in terms of the international consensus. Iran and Hezbollah have made it clear that they will abide by any agreement that Palestinians accept.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013   Published: 2014
    Poole's review of Orwell is itself a textbook example of the kind of alienated response described by Orwell, Fromm and Schmidt. Whereas Orwell's essay is the work of an impassioned, outspoken individual opposing 'the machine society’, Poole's article is the work of a corporate professional operating ‘within the confines of an assigned ideology’.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2009
    On the issue of free speech most of the right and much of the left are in agreement, and so too are many liberals, activists, and human rights apparatchiks. They hold essentially the same position on freedom of expression - they are for it -in principle-, but only so long as it isn't used to express views that they find unacceptable or offensive. What they disagree about is merely who gets to decide what ideas are unacceptable, i.e., who gets to censor who.

    First Published: 2011
    The Occupy movement occupied two parallel, rarely intersecting universes in the corporate media.

    Snowden Coverage

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2013

    Consensus for the People that Matter

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2014
    A recent article in FAIR reviewed the findings of its latest study on the quality of political “debate” being aired on the mainstream networks. It studied the run-up to the military interventions in both Iraq and Syria. Perhaps the arbiters of the study intended to illustrate what we’ve learned since the fraudulent Iraq War of 2003. Well, it appears we’ve learned nothing.
  75. The Illusion of Democracy
    Liberal Journalism, Wikileaks And Climate Deceptions

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012
    In an era of permanent war, economic meltdown and climate ‘weirding’, we need all the champions of truth and justice that we can find. But where are they? What happened to trade unions, the green movement, human rights groups, campaigning newspapers, peace activists, strong-minded academics, progressive voices?

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012

  78. Incinerating Assange - The Liberal Media Go To Work
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012

  79. The Inquisition of Climate Science
    Resource Type: Book
    First Published: 2011
    The Inquisition of Climate Science is the first book to comprehensively take on the climate science denial movement and the deniers themselves, exposing their lack of credentials, their extensive industry funding, and their failure to provide any alternative theory to explain the observed evidence of warming. Lawrence Powell's book clearly reveals that the evidence of global warming is real and that an industry of denial has deceived the American public, putting them and their grandchildren at risk.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    Most ambitious journalists start out on a daily local newspaper owned by one of a handful of large media groups. There one quickly feels all sorts of institutional constraints on one's reporting. As a young journalist, if you know no better, you simply come to accept that journalism is done in a certain kind of way, that certain stories are suitable and others unsuitable.
  82. Intellectual Cleansing: Part 3
    Resource Type: Article

  90. Jonathan Cook - Response to Intellectual Cleansing Part 1 
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2008
    However grateful we should be to the tiny minority of dissident writers, their relegation to the margins of the commentary pages of Britain's 'leftwing' media serves a useful purpose for corporate interests. It helps define the 'character' of the British media as provocative, pluralistic and free-thinking - when in truth they are anything but. It is a vital component in maintaining the fiction that a professional media is a diverse media.
  91. Journalism and 'the words of power'

  110. Medialens
    Resource Type: Website
    Correcting for the distorted vision of the corporate media.
    MediaLens is a response based on our conviction that mainstream newspapers and broadcasters provide a profoundly distorted picture of our world. We are convinced that the increasingly centralised, corporate nature of the media means that it acts as a de facto propaganda system for corporate and other establishment interests. The costs incurred as a result of this propaganda, in terms of human suffering and environmental degradation, are incalculable.
    In seeking to understand the basis and operation of this systematic distortion, we flatly reject all conspiracy theories and point instead to the inevitably corrupting effects of free market forces operating on and through media corporations seeking profit in a society dominated by corporate power.

    Brexit, the British vote to leave the European Union, has thrown the political elites into turmoil and confusion. The referendum was supposed to be a safe political manoeuvre, a way to produce an appearance of democratic legitimacy for the profoundly undemocratic structures of the EU.

This issue of Other Voices looks at the Brexit referendum, elite loathing for democracy, and the related attempt to get rid of Labour's leftwing leader, Jeremy Corbyn.

    Nafeez Ahmed’s account of the sudden termination of his short-lived contract to write an environment blog for the Guardian is depressingly instructive – and accords with my own experiences as a journalist at the paper.
  187. Why the Swedish Left Lost
    An Analysis of the Electoral Fiasco and Lessons for the Democrats

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2010
    Analysts and political leaders on the left focus on how the right wing's lies go unfiltered by the establishment mass media.

    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2012   Published: 2013
    Reading about crimes of state over many years, it is tempting to try to fathom the mind-set of political leaders. What actually is going on in their heads when they order sanctions that kill hundreds of thousands of children? What is in their hearts when they wage needless wars that shatter literally millions of lives? Similar questions come to mind as the US and UK governments once again raise the spectre of ‘weapons of mass destruction’ to demonise a target for ‘regime change’, this time in Syria.
